Barclays was riding high a few years ago, after it emerged largely unscathed from the financial meltdown. But starting in 2010 the UK bank has been enmeshed in a series of legal and regulatory scandals involving violations of economic sanctions against countries such as Iran and illegal manipulation of the LIBOR interest rate index. Now it is under investigation for having used corrupt means to avoid government intervention during the meltdown.

“The big bankers of the world, who practice the terrorism of money, are more powerful than kings and field marshals, even more than the Pope of Rome himself. They never dirty their hands. They kill no one: they limit themselves to applauding the show.
Their officials, international technocrats, rule our countries: they are neither presidents nor ministers, they have not been elected, but they decide the level of salaries and public expenditure, investments and divestments, prices, taxes, interest rates, subsidies, when the sun rises and how frequently it rains.”
